I had read, on Thursday, that the runway had been cleared of snow and that the 2018 ‘Airport on Ice‘, on Alton Bay, on Lake Winnipesaukee, NH, was ready for action.

Given that Saturday was warm (i.e., 40°F (4.4°C)) with nary a gust of wind I expected to see a stream of planes landing and taking off. Bit crushed that it was EMPTY when we swung by around 2pm. There might have been a few planes earlier. There were some tire tracks on the apron — where the planes park. But, it could have been a car.

Yes, I know that the ‘Festival’ per se is next weekend, but in prior years we have had planes before and after the festival.

I plan to swing by on Sunday too, but we are expecting a ton of rain — which would not be conducive to flying.
